‘Twas the night before retirement list and everyone was waiting! What will retire, what will stay??? The current Annual Catalogue finishes on 3rd May 2021 and the new catalogue joins us on 4th May 2021.

I’m guessing that we might see the retirement of some of the products I’ve used on this card….

The flowers are from the Country Home stamp set, the embossing folder is the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder and the sentiment is from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set.

The pretty yellow patterned paper -which coordinates beautifully with the embossing folder is from the Fine Art Floral DSP. This won’t retire just yet – there’s a month of overlap between the Annual Catalogue and the Jan-June Mini Catalogue. I love this – it means we can mix and match more products as we explore the new Annual together with the mini.

We can never be sure what will make the list for another year and what will be replaced by new & fun products. Some of the things that might influence a product going into retirement include how long it has been in a current catalogue, popularity and how it fits into the upcoming product releases. However, until that list comes out, it’s all a guess!

Actually, not all a guess…. we know the 2019-2021 In Colors will definitely retire. Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile are all leaving us. Reinkers are always first to sell out as everyone makes sure they can continue to stamp with their favourite colours.

I’ll share the retirement list tomorrow. Once this list appears, some products will sell out quickly. All products on the retirement list are available until supplies in the warehouse sell out. So, if there’s anything you really want, you may want to place an order sooner rather than later! My online store is open 24-7 and shopping your pjs is encouraged! Click here to shop online.
